Quatermass and the Pit (1)

The haunted-looking Andre Morell is just perfect as Quatermass, heading a strong ensemble cast that includes Cec Linder, John Stratton and Anthony Bushell. The music by Trevor Duncan is dramatic and thrilling. In devising a new signature tune he deviates from the pattern established in earlier Quatermass series, which used Mars – The Bringer of War from Gustav Holst's Planets Suite. Likewise Desmond Briscoe's evocative sound effects, from the then newly-created BBC Radiophonic Workshop, are shocking. (BBC TV, 22/12/1958 – 26/01/1959)
